Amazing beer selection for bottles as well as a really well laid out website to get through their large selection of bottles before you make the trip into BK. They offer mix-a-six type of service offering mostly all single bottles in all sizes.

They have 16 beers on tap at any time. Sometimes they have a total brewery takeover of their taps, other times they mix it up. But you can bet it is going to be something special and interesting.

Also, they have some of the best hand crafted sandwiches in brooklyn, especially in a beer store type of setting, which is saying a lot. They use amazing breads and come up with some great sandwich concepts using really high end ingredients. So grab a pint at the tap station and then get a sandwich from the counter have a seat and enjoy, then don't forget to grab a six pack or 2 on your way out.

This is a renaissance beer store. You enter and on both sides are reasonably priced bottles of some very cool stuff. They have a very nice selection that includes a shelf of hard to find beers or bottles they aged themselves. They have a handful of taps and they have a sandwich shop with some nice cheeses attached to the place. They are also in the process of getting a brewing license to make their own beer. When I went there the staff was not very friendly though. My girlfriend and I were the only two in the store and the two employees there were speaking to each other and didn't even acknowledge us until we started to move a couple bottles we wanted to the counter. At that point they did get some points back when they offered us a couple pulls from the tap even though we hadn't shown any interest previously.

All and all it was a worth while trip and a place I would return to.

After going in tne front door, you walk down a narrow isle lined with bottled beer, much of it specialty beers that weren't too badly priced. The tastings of the dozen and a half beers were free and the guys working the counter were pretty knowledgeable, althogh I couldn't talk them into selling me a growler of either of the Peekskill beers because they were too hard to get (they would sell pints tho). They also wouldn't sell me any growlers unless I replaced my old metal caps with plastic polyseal caps (something I'd been meaning to do anyway).
I really liked the place and will definitely stop in next time I'm in town.
